  1. 1. Costa Brava SpainCertainly not short on charm or popularity, Spain has a wealth of amenities for those who know how to enjoy life.Whether you are seeking a beachfront resort, a city escape or a rural retreat, Spain has it all.
  2. 2. FABULOUS SUNSHINE AND BEACHES HAVE BEEN ATTRACTING VISITORS TO SPAIN FOR MANY YEARS BUT SPAIN IS PERFECT FOR MANY TYPES OF HOLIDAYS. From luxurious marinas and breathtaking mountains to beautiful resorts and exhilarating nightlife, Spain can be whatever you want it to be. GREEN SPAIN is the countryside by shore between the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Biscay. The Regions of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country, in northern Spain, are home to some of most valuable and best-conserved ecological areas in Europe. These are landscapes full of contrasts, with salt- water rivers, endless greenery that can be discovered on horseback, by boat, or following an old Roman road. A coastline that stretches for more than 2,000 km, with cliffs, mountains, forests, rivers, beaches, deep gorges and valleys. The COSTA BLANCA or 'white coast' is a land of many contrasts with golden beaches, green valleys, mountains, quaint villages and over 150km of coastline overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean sea with an irresistible promise of sun and sand. As you begin to explore the Costa Blanca, its varied history and culture will become evident – owing to early settlements of Romans, Iberians and the Carthaginians, you will come across archeological sites, castles and stone-carved churches. The COSTA DEL SOL has built its success on its warm air and sea and almost guaranteed sunshine. Resorts range from Marbella – with its exclusive marina at Puerto Banús – to Torremolinos, add dramatic mountain scenery and the spectacular cave at Nerja and you have the perfect destination. There are 11 marinas on the Costa del Sol, offering sailing and watersports facilities and most have magnificent nightlife and top restaurants, with many stylish boutiques and shops of all kinds. The COSTA CALIDA, or 'warm coast' is home to both the Mar Menor and La Manga Club. The 250km of coastline which lies between the Costa Blanca and Costa Almeria is shared by two seas: the Mar Menor, the biggest salt water lake in Europe and one of the best places in the world for watersports; and on the other side is the Mediterranean with the fine-sand beaches of Punta del Estacio, Ensenada del Esparto and Galúa. The COSTA DEL LA LUZ faces south-west into the sun and the Atlantic and is aptly named the ‘Coast of Light’. Fine golden sands, windsurfers’ winds, the historic cities of Seville and Cadiz, and Jerez de la Frontera – the home of sherry – are some of the reasons this region is so popular with the Spanish themselves. The COSTA BRAVA is a rugged corner of Catalonia which has captivated artists such as Dalí, Chagall and Picasso; its attractions range from resorts like Lloret de Mar and Platja d’Aro to the architecture of Girona and the scenic beauty of places such as Banyoles and Cadaqués. Catalonia’s distinctness is evident in the Catalan language and traditional festivals. COSTA DE ALMERÍA is a popular, modern tourist resort with natural areas where mankind has barely left its mark. Enjoy varied folklore and plenty of fiestas, as well as popular handicrafts such as pottery, rugs and marble. Gastronomic specialities such as paprika, gurullos (stews), and seafood soup are also a legacy from the region's rich past. Spain is a golfing paradise with 313 courses spread across major cities, mountain areas and right on the coast Choice Villas & Apartments 2010 57 Estepona, Costa del Sol
  3. 3. Fact file Experience first-hand “SPANISH EQUESTRIAN ART” at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez de la Frontera (Cadiz), Andalusia. Visit this internationally- renowned institution and tour its facilities, where you will see that horses form part of the culture of Andalusia. You will also be able to admire the way they dance to the beat of traditional Spanish music. THE ALHAMBRA is a beautiful complex of buildings and gardens in Granada. Its leafy tree- lined walkways provide pleasant shade and coolness, enhanced by the abundance of water that flows in its streams. It was the largest political and aristocratic centre of the Muslim West. The Palace premises are made up of beautiful rectangular courtyards and numerous fountains. The oldest building is the Alcazaba (citadel). THE PYRENEES is the large mountain range which separates northern Spain from the rest of Europe, and is fascinating for its stunning natural landscapes. The range is 450 km long, reaching from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean. Sports are an excellent medium by which to enjoy this extreme, abrupt countryside to the full. Just north of ALICANTE, the 17th-century parish church and the Calvario, Santa Ana and San Roque chapels make up the monumental heritage of San Juan de Alicante. THE ROMAN THEATRE in Cartagena, Murcia is now open to visitors. Hidden for centuries under other buildings, the remains of the Roman Theatre were only discovered in 1988 and since then a major project has been underway to carefully preserve and excavate the theatre.
